In our anti-establishment time, why aren’t Joe Kennedy and Stephen Colbert considered for President and VP?
Joe Kennedy, a US representative from Massachusetts, gave the Democratic rebuttal to the 2019 State of the Union and said “my generation will tear down the wall (if they build it).”
Couldn’t this be the year of the outsider when so many refuse to support candidates over 75?

Over his four terms in the House of Representatives, Joe has emerged as a national figure in the Democratic Party’s most pivotal debates. From his headline-making fights for affordable health care and compassionate immigration policy to his legislative leadership on issues like mental health parity and civil rights, Joe has become one of the Trump Era’s most powerful voices for moral clarity.

A rising political leader, Joe has seized the challenges of his generation, from his striking critique of American capitalism to his vision for a better foreign policy, his powerful response to conservative abuse of religious liberty, and his voice for climate justice.

He has challenged the old political system with calls to end the Electoral College, abolish the filibuster and reform the Supreme Court. He is deeply invested in the future of the Democratic Party, traveling the country and Commonwealth to help elect the candidates, build the coalitions and support the political infrastructure that we need to enact progressive reform.

As a Congressman, Joe has prioritized presence and accessibility for his constituents. Known for holding open office hours in every single community in his district, he has championed local vocational schools, a growing clean energy sector, needed infrastructure, and the myriad issues that directly touch the families he represents.

Joe is the kind of elected official who calls. He checks in. He listens, and he shows up.

In Washington, Joe has shown a unique talent for building diverse coalitions and the political will to get things done. He has built an impressive legislative record in a polarized Washington, spearheading bipartisan efforts to extend mental health coverage for children and pregnant women, support our domestic manufacturing industry, protect consumer voices online, make hearing aids more affordable, and defend access to legal assistance for struggling families.

Born and raised in Boston, Joe received his undergraduate degree in Management Science & Engineering from Stanford University and his law degree from Harvard. He speaks fluent Spanish, is a twin, and was the starting goalie for the Stanford club lacrosse team.

Joe is married to Lauren Birchfield

Joe has spent his career fighting for the people our system locks out, lets down, and leaves behind. He will bring new passion and strong moral leadership to our biggest fights.

    The Democratic primary is no longer over. This is a historic crisis requiring nothing less than FDR-style ambition and leadership. We’ve got just the guy.
